Minju Kim the sublimation of the human desire

By Art | Art | 14 Jul 2019


Minju Kim is an artist that has truly creates from her experience. Suffering from a rare body condition Kim from a young age Kim had a lot of first hand experience with doctors’ medical examinations being a big part of her everyday life. This strange and sterile environment would become the incubation for Minju’s Artistic creation. Her work is created painstakingly all the works are made by hand taking days to complete. Her work while most of the time bright and colourful is made up of natural spaces and curves. While deeply colourful and so with what would normally be happy colours the work gives off a venerable sadness. The skill Minju displays is years ahead of her age.


Currently based in London. Kim currently resides and works from her studio in Hackney.  She graduated with an MA in Visual Arts: Illustration from Camberwell College of Arts, University of the Arts London in 2017, receiving a Distinction. She also studied BA (Hons) Creative Direction for Fashion at London college of Fashion between 2013 and 2015, and graduated in BFA Printmaking from the College of Fine Arts at Hongik University, Seoul, South Korea in 2013.


 “I believe the consciousness and corporeality are inevitable elements of human life. In diverse media my work attempts to embody the sublimation of the human desire into perpetuity.” - Minju Kim
